This book provides an authoritative and practical explanation of what RCM is and how it can be applied.

It is of vital importance to anyone concerned with

  • productivity
  • quality
  • safety
  • and environmental integrity.

Initially developed by the aviation industry, RCM is rapidly becoming fundamental to the practice of maintenance management and is now in use at hundreds of industrial and service organizations around the world.  

RCM is a process used to determine what must be done to ensure that any physical asset continues to do what its users want it to do in its present operating context. 

 The book covers the seven questions of the RCM process:
  • What are the functions of the equipment?
  • In what ways can it fail?
  • What causes it to fail?
  • What happens when it fails?
  • Does it matter if it fails?
  • Can anything be done to predict or prevent the failure?
  • What if we cannot predict failure?

Readers of Reliability Centered Management think it is the "Best reference for RCM" Daryl Mather says,

"I have been working in the field of RCM since 1991. During that time I have read most of the texts in the marketplace on the subject as well as having worked in a range of countries and industries using a range of different methods.

Johns book is unique in that it is set in the context of asset maintenance as a managerial discipline of growing strategic significance. His vast knowledge, coupled with the vast knowledge and resources of his network of RCM practitioners, have combined to make this the finest text on RCM that has been produced to date.

If you want to get to know a little about RCM, understand how it is applied, and understand some of the techniques and principles that make up this area of expertise, then there is no better book in today's marketplace. I still carry a copy with me today on most jobs I undertake.

Written in layman's terms Johns' book is the most read book on the subject, and remains the standard by which others are measured. Don't waste your time elsewhere."
